Wisconsin's Third World Mine

At the September 15, 2013, MAMA educationa/fundraising event, Professor Al Gedicks spoke about the Social License to Operate theory that ultimately killed the Crandon mine in NE Wisconsin.

That speech has now been published and we commend Prof. Gedicks' thoughts to you: http://wcmcoop.com/2013/09/27/militarized-mining-in-wisconsin/

    I think this is a good example of the need to fight back with local communities’ BILLS OF RIGHTS. We need to get CELDF (Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund – see their website) working in Wisconsin. We need to prepare for the big business and corporate onslaught. We the people have the right to breathe clean air and drink clean water and not have trucks full of sand and railroad cars full of low grade iron ore running up and down our roads and highways twenty four hours a day, seven days of the week.

    The motivation for big businesses like mining companies is profit, and the profit motive does not make for good human values.
